Happy Fall.

Not like, Fall and Break Something, Fall. But that wonderful time of the year when the leaves start turning vibrant colors, the crock pot becomes full of soup, warm comfort foods come out of the oven and the temps become cooler....


WAIT a minute!!! What's this? 102 degrees? What gives, Mother Nature????

Yep. As I was beginning the seasonal decorations inside, the outside was FULL ON SUMMER!!!

But, I'm stubborn like that. So, I just kept on putting away the Summery stuff and began changing things on the inside...





So, here's a little pumpkin house I picked up from our local Salvation Army. It's a resin casting, but quite cute, I thought.







Then, there's this really big pumpkin head. He's actually a vintage trick or treater's pumpkin with a witches hat sitting on top. Not a lotta work here! 

The other little ditty, is an old mannequin hand I found last year for a song, with a cute little "head" popped onto the pointer finger...just for a little conversation starter....

Here's my staple. A mini-muffin tin with new words. Man, usually, it's a challenge coming up with just the right four-letter words. This time, I had a ton to choose from.  Moon, Rats, Cats, Hats.....see what I mean???









AND my favorite Halloween Christmas present last year, I received on New Year's Eve from our Disney friends, Jeff and Kris.

My new Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington wreath. It's been in the box since last year. It's a facsimile of the Haunted Mansion wreaths. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. At Christmas, I'll move it to the front door!!!

This is only the beginning of my decorating. AND I'm happy to report, so far ALL of it - except for the wreath - is thrifted!!!

Just doing my little part.....

Happy Fall to ALL.

Oh, I know what you mean about the summery weather for the beginning of fall. We're not at 102 but we've been hovering around 90 and it's hard to be "fall motivated" around here. I love the way you've got your pumpkin house displayed on old books and an old suitcase!
